Who We Are

3Columns was founded in 2017, when a wave of high profile cyberattacks crippled major organisations [Sony, Equifax etc.….] and caused significant data and revenue theft, loss of consumer confidence, and reputation damage.

Founder Amit Singh, A consultant with 15+ years’ in the Cybersecurity industry, was concerned about the future prospects for small and medium businesses, at a time when even global corporations are vulnerable to hackers, and decided to do something about it.

His decision was strongly influenced by a recently introduced law in Australia requiring companies to disclose privacy breaches. Companies were not obliged to do this prior to the law being passed.

Amit understood that one of the major causes for these breaches were firewalls being passed off as comprehensive cybersecurity solutions. It was the triumph of marketing over technical know-how so Amit started 3Columns shortly thereafter, rigorously testing (and breaching) firewalls for clients and pinpointing where they were vulnerable before securing them. 

Today, 3Columns is a team of like-minded consultants and engineers. We partner with business owners and deliver a comprehensive range of end-to-end technology services, including:

  • Cybersecurity

  • Unified Communications and
  • Data Centre design.
